Are you looking for a challenge in 2017? Why not conquer Snowdon and raise vital funds for Self Help Africa at the same time?

You will trek to the top of Wales to conquer Mount Snowdon at an elevation of 3,560ft. The trail to the summit is the Pyg Track, which starts at the top of Pen y Pass and rises steadily with the imposing Crib Goch directly above. As the path gradually rises, you are privy to amazing views down to Glaslyn far below. You continue to zig zag up until reaching the monolith which opens up dramatic views as far as Anglesey; from here it’s just a short walk to the summit.

After congratulations all round and the obligatory celebration photos at the summit, you start your descent on the Llanberis Path. Although this is the longest in distance, it is a gradual descent, so easy going underfoot after the strenuous climb up to the summit and you are treated to the most stunning views as you wind your way down to Llanberis for a celebratory meal!
